CALLIOPE FARM COMPOST COLLECTION
Don’t have the time or space to compost yourself?  You can still divert your food scraps from the landfill, and contribute to healthy soils by participating in Calliope Farm Compost Collection!

HOW IT WORKS:
Put down a $5 deposit on a 5 gallon bucket and lid from Calliope Farm
Fill it with approved biodegradable household and garden waste
Bring it to the Camden Ave Farmers Market, as needed, and exchange it for a clean bucket
Help close the local loop!
